Rice University Kinesiology Department
Health Sciences Program
The goal of the health sciences program is to
provide students with a fundamental background in health promotion and disease
prevention. This background will enable them to understand the role that health
promotion plays in society and the mechanisms that affect public and community
health while also considering the complexities of maintaining an optimal level
of personal health. The health science program is viewed as an excellent option
for undergraduate students who are preparing to enter graduate school in public
health, health promotion, and health education, as well as other health-related
graduate or professional programs such as medicine or dentistry.
Graduates of the Health Sciences program receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology with Concentration in Health Sciences.
